We had a great experience with Austin!

He and his team often express how they put 'humans over houses' and our family experienced that firsthand. His communication is quick and he was very flexible with our unique work schedules. Austin took the time to listen to our needs, explain the process, and walk us through each step. It's always reassuring to know we have a realtor that is truly looking out for our best interests. If you're looking for someone who will go above and beyond, Austin and his team at NextHome is the perfect choice!

Lucas and Paige Harder

I whole heartedly recommend Seth as your realtor!

Seth did an outstanding job with my wife and I, from first contact to the closing, and even continuing after closing. He was very level-headed and offered sound guidance each step of the way, including our offer and following up on a punch list from the home inspection. He has a vast and handy network for seemingly every need that arose, including inspectors, plumbers, electricians, and more. He also was excellent at staying connected with us, keeping us informed on everything, and doing so very efficiently. Lastly, he has a very respectful and soothing demeanor, which helped keep us confident and secure during the process. So, if you're looking for a realtor, I strongly recommend that you contact Seth. Thank you Seth for all you did for Jenny and I!!!

John Kuhnash (Chief Financial Officer)

Liz is a solid realtor.

Polite. Helpful. And a quick reply away via text message (responsiveness gets 5 stars). We built a good rapport. Being a first time home buyer I wish she had explained some things to me in advance in a little more detail is all. Thanks, Liz!!

Jordan Tobias Long

I really liked working with Lindsey.

She handled my desires for a unique home without hesitation and made looking at places fun. I'm glad to be in my new space and I owe Lindsey a lot of gratitude.

Robert King

Becca Atitya

Lindsey was amazing throughout our time as first time home buyers.

She was timely with each piece of communication and step throughout our journey! Lindsey went above and beyond to make sure our time with her was informative and enjoyable. I would recommend Lindsey to anyone who is looking to sell their house or buy one! Thank you Lindsey for all that you have done for us.

Lauren Meyer

Lindsey was awesome throughout the whole experience.

She was able to assist us in everyday and made the entire process extremely easy. If there was a problem she would notify us immediately and help us to fix it. She did an amazing job and I cannot thank her enough. I would have no problem recommending her to any of my friends or family!

Nathan Soliday

Austin did a fantastic job on purchasing our new home, preparing our current home for sale, and was able to take care of the process far beyond the basic needs.

Specifically giving twice-a-week updates on our process was a huge help in figuring out our next steps. I even recommended him for a friend looking at homes before our process was completed.

Austin Williams

I took a friend’s advise and contacted Liz.

She was prompt in replying back and set up an appointment quickly. She was very informative about the process. She was prompt on replying and scheduling appointments. I would go through her again if I would sell another house!

Kimberly Stigall

I was searching for a house for my brother and his wife who need to move closer to family for health reasons.

We found a house we wanted to look at and Seth was the realtor. He met us at the house, went over all of the information on the house, explained his business and the way they look at how it should be handled. I was so impressed with the idea they have in dealing with their clients. I love the core values they use as a guideline. Anything we needed to make the process easier he had an answer for. We were also in the process of buying a property ourselves. It was a for sale by owner. Seth stepped in and helped us get that accomplished without a hitch. We have moved a lot in our lives, being military, and we have not had a more caring and helpful realtor in all of the 30 years we have been buying and selling. If you want a realtor who is truly looking out for your interests you could not find a better person. He is the best of the best!


Austin was great through the whole process!

I live 45 minutes from the house I was selling and he was great in assisting with issues that came up. I would 100% recommend!


Cortney was an amazing realtor, and helped me in so many ways to navigate through the buying process, from beginning to the very end!

I was a first time homebuyer, with 3 little ones, buying a home in a crazy market and had a long list of wants. I had so many questions and relied on her experience much more then I ever expected, but she was always honest and never led me wrong. I would 100% recommend her and will definitely use her again in the future..... if I ever move! #RockstarRealtor

Heather Bilbrey (Management)

I just want to thank Austin for all his hard work in selling my house.

It was an absolute pleasure working with him. Austin did a great job in providing advice, suggestions, as well as keeping me informed during the entire selling process. He was available by either phone or in person and always had an answer to any of my questions. He truly made selling my home a painless experience. His knowledge about the real estate market and his job sills are second to none. I would strongly suggest to any one either preparing to buy or sell their home to give him a call as you will not be disappointed.

Bradley Tucker

Lindsey did an awesome job helping us find a house!

She sent us houses as soon as they would come up on the market that she knew we were looking for! She very straight to the point and knows how to get things done! She was very good at communicating.

Courtney Winkle

I got lucky and got Courtney referred to me through an online realty website.

Trevor Redwine

Austin Rich is a great real estate agent.

We would recommend him to anyone wanting to buy or sell a house. He's friendly and reliable.He was a blessing to us. He listed my sister's house and it was pending after 3 days. He called us every Monday and Friday to let us know how things were going. He made it a quick and easy process.

Nathan Wilson

This was one of the most remarkable and professional home buying experiences I’ve had.

Austin made everything so easy and such a smooth process. Making sure every small detail was worked out. He has went above and beyond to make sure everything was just right and perfect. I would highly recommend and use Austin for anyone looking to buy or sell their home!!

Randy Gardner (Homeowner)

Austin is truly amazing at what he does.

He is client-focused first and foremost. I told him my goals. He listened. And those goals became his, too. He worked hard from start to finish to make things happen. I truly appreciate everything he did to get this house sold! I will always recommend Austin to anyone and everyone who is looking to sell a house or buy one. There's no one better!

Ashley Lauilefue

We feel so fortunate to have found Austin Rich!

I cannot overstate how much time, energy, patience, and genuine care Austin gave to my family through our process of selling our home, and then trying to purchase a new home a few months later during the chaos of the 2021 housing market. We put in offer after offer, but lost out every time to wild “no inspection” offers. Austin kept our spirits high and was always willing to take us to see another house as soon as it came on the market. When he felt like a house wasn’t a good fit for our family, Austin patiently walked us through his concerns. Truly embodying his motto to put “humans over houses”. When my family needed a break, when the housing market’s unpredictability was too much for us to handle. We decided to rent for a couple months and hope that the market would cool down. Austin kept in contact with us, making sure we knew there was no pressure to start looking for houses again, but when we were ready he was too. Six months later, when an amazing home in a neighborhood we loved went on the market, I texted Austin at 6am! We met him hours later and put in an offer that same night. The next day we found out WE GOT THE HOUSE!! But there was one small thing… we couldn’t let our kids get their hopes up about another house for it to all fall through. So we kept it a secret! Once all the inspections and negotiations were finalized, we hatched a plan with Austin to tell our kids. We booked a “showing” and brought the kids along. Austin walked them through the house (like he had done dozens of times before) and talked to them like mini-adults about the pros/cons and whether we should put in an offer. The kids enthusiastically said YES! That’s when we revealed that the house was already ours! It was an exciting and emotional evening - all thanks to the support, care, and kindness of Austin Rich and Next Home! The Pavelka family is forever indebted to Austin and his team for making the last year one of the best years of our lives!

Kelsey and Shelby Pavelka

Austin was able to find us a great home at a great price in todays competitive housing market.

He was amazing to work with due to his excellent communication skills and willingness to go the extra mile (literally). He showed us houses all over the place and was so patient with us as me and my wife purchased our first home together. When it came to the closing process, we had chosen a mortgage company prior to working with Austin, and our experience with their loan officer & closing team was subpar. Despite this, Austin showed a level of professionalism, determination, and integrity that is rarely found today. Frankly put, Austin is simply the best there is. You won’t regret employing his services.

John Gordon (Director of Sales)

Being a first time home buyer can be scary at first BUT Liz made every step easy & painless.

She was there to answer ANY questions we had, no matter the time or day. She was willing to travel to go see any house we wanted to see and never once complained. She always went above and beyond for us. Liz made home buying worth it.

Lilli DeLosReyes

Austin and Cortney are great to work with.

They were happy to help in every way we asked of them, answered all of our questions, and kept us up to date throughout the buying process. We would go to them again and plan to when we sell our other house.

Chip Meyer

Kathy was so great to work with in finding our new home.

We did not know the area at all and she helped us find a perfect fit. She helped us above and beyond and she communicated quickly (which is pertinent in this market!)

Kristen Harmon

I am very happy I chose Austin to list my home.

The entire process went very smoothly and Austin went above and beyond to make this a stress free process. Austin is very detailed in his work and his customer service making sure I was informed on every detail from start to finish!

Grant Evans

Austin went above and beyond for us on the sale of our house.

He delivered on everything he said he was going to do. His go getter attitude and professionalism is a hard to find quality and we were very pleased to have worked with him.

Samuel Combs

This is second home we bought with Kathy, she is very professional and through, she knows the neighborhood and her clients very well.

I highly recommend her for any real estate transaction.


As with our previous real estate transactions, Austin went above and beyond when helping us find and purchase a home for my mother.

If he can't take my call, he always calls back as soon as he can. He's knowledgeable of the local market. We wouldn't use any other realtor in Delaware County, IN! Thanks, Austin!

Kiersten Neal

Liz exceeded every want, need, and desire I had.

When I was ready to give up Liz gave me the motivation and courage to keep trying. She took it into consideration what buying meant to me and was so realistic, but also optimistic through out the entire process. When I said I wanted to see a house Liz made that happen on the drop of a dime. When I was ready to put in an offer she made sure we offered the best deal to not only get the offer accepted, but also have equity in my home as soon as I signed the papers for it. This is not just a recommendation that you should use Liz this is me letting you know that if you want to make your dreams come true you need Liz.

Haley Hodge (Buyer)

Seth is the best.

Always willing to go that extra distance to help you with finding and purchasing a home.

James Healy

We had to sell our house and move in a very short time frame.

Austin Rich made selling our house a breeze. He was very involved from start to finish. He went above and beyond with checking on our house and property when we were not able to. We felt he was very straight forward throughout the process. He made it feel as we were doing business with a friend instead of just another realtor. I would highly recommend Austin. He will go above and beyond, treat you right, and be right beside you from day one. I couldn’t have asked for anything more.


It was a pleasure to work with Austin Rich.

He is very knowledgeable and will answer any questions that you have. He worked very hard to help me through my first home buying experience. We sat down and he asked me exactly what I was looking for and he emailed me almost daily when a matching house came on the market. No matter what time of the day he was there for me. I am so thankful and blessed to have had Austin, he treats you like family, your more than just a client.

Cynthia Greer

To Whom It May Concern: I recently had the pleasure of having Seth Stanley help me sell my lake home.

He went far and beyond what you would expect from a Realtor. He oversaw me on meeting the demands of the buyer. He kept me informed and updated on all matters and would explain things to me in a way that I could understand. He was always concerned about any issues I might have had. I am almost 80 and I had to handle this sale on my own because my husband is terminally ill. Seth treated me with respect, courtesy and thoughtfulness. I would strongly recommend Seth to anyone who is searching for a Realtor - either to help you sell or to buy a home. Respectfully submitted, Sharon Sims

Sharon Sims Sims (Homeowner)

Cortney made the entire process look easy.

Always quick to reply back and get the answers we needed. We highly recommend her for your buying and selling needs.


After raising our children and being in the "homestead" for 32+ years, Austin and his team made our transition to a new home less daunting.

He was always full of helpful suggestions, answered any questions/concerns we had with knowledgeable answers, and kept us informed with step by step updates throughout the whole process. He is great to work with, highly organized, and paid attention to every detail.

Steve & Debbie Curtis

When good friends are also great at their job, everyone wins!

Selling our first home was bittersweet for our family and Austin was amazing to work with. Managed a few “roadblocks” quickly and professionally to make this process as smooth as possible. It is refreshing to find someone so willing to go above and beyond for their clients.

Mike & Cherrie Stanley

From the first day I sat down and talked with Austin.

I knew he'd be the best realtor to find me my home in this market. He was professional, timely and talked to me about any needs. He maintains contact with his clients and keeps them updated on everything. He's the best at what he does and when you work with him, you'll see why. Don't go anywhere else besides to Austin and his team.

Justus Norris

When I first contacted Michelle, I was only looking for someone to help my daughter and me with a “for sale by owner” transaction.

That fell through and Michelle offered to help us house hunt. We are so glad we took her up on her offer! She was quick, efficient and extremely knowledgeable about houses in the area and the entire process!! I never realized how necessary a good realtor could be, but Michelle showed me in deed and action. She made the process so smooth and non-stressful!! If you want a great realtor to help with a sale or purchase, Michelle is the best person for the job!! If I could have a do-over, I would choose her again!!

Cindy Dunn

Austin was so wonderful and knowledgeable.

He answered any question I had. He was very honest and kind. It was a difficult time for me and he was very helpful through it.

Suzanne Pease

Kathy took us under her wing when we bought our first house.

She explained the process in a way we could understand and helped us get into an amazing home. When we decided to sell Kathy helped us again through the process. Kathy is very knowledgeable and will do everything she can to give you the best outcome.

Erin Brown-Epperson

Kathy is the best Realtor in the nation!


Ryan Hourigan

I would highly recommend Austin to any family, friend, or customer!

From beginning to end he helped us through every step and his weekly communication skills out pace anyone I have ever worked with In my 35 years in business! Thank you! David, Lana, and Sadie

David Ryan Stanley (Director of Sales & Marketing )

We have used Austin for the purchase, and most recently the sale of our home.

Austin does a great job at communicating and explaining all of the steps throughout the process. Everything was very easy and streamlined throughout the selling process as well. Austin truly cares about his clients and has their best interest at heart. I would 100% recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell!

Mitch Corry

Kathy was there for every single question we had.

She was a tremendous help. Would recommend her to anyone looking to find their forever home! She is great! Super professional, nice and understanding!

Devon Brumback

Cortney is a great real estate agent who knows the market very well.

What makes her even more helpful is that she is a real person. By that I mean she is like having a friend out house hunting with you and not an agent with a business transaction to do. She is very down to earth, easy to get along with and always has your back! She is very patient and never pushy. She is always there for you to answer questions anytime. I highly recommend her!

John Cota (Project Manager)

Cortney is personal and professional.

The whole experience of buying our forever home was quick, easy, and very pleasant. I would highly recommend her.

Taylor Redwine

I had Seth Stanley as my realtor and I’ve never meet someone who is so kind and dedicated to his job 100% , He always shows up on time he worked with us to find the perfect home for me and my family!

He goes above and beyond If your looking to buy a house I highly suggest you call Seth you won’t regret it!

Cassandra Morrow and Lance St John (Buyer)

I decided to pursue the "For Sale By Owner" process for my recent home sale and Austin represented the buyer.

Having previously sold in other parts of the US, I wasn't aware of some of the nuance to the selling side here in Indiana. He helped both parties walk through the process, representing his client and helping everything move quickly/smoothly for all. Though he wasn't representing me, he went above and beyond in being helpful, responsive, and positive.

Steph (Ball State University)

Austin was absolutely awesome.

All throughout the process, which took a little more than a month, he was in constant contact to let us know what was next. If we ever had a question he always got back to us within a few minutes.

After two years of working with Austin to find a home for our family I can confidently say you cannot match Austin’s expertise, knowledge, and efficiency with time.

His commitment is unmatched. Our questions were thoroughly answered, calls were promptly returned, advice was realistic and helpful, and he worked tirelessly to ensure we were always putting the best foot forward. Buying and selling a house is a WHIRLDWIND and Austin ensured we were informed and taken care of the entire process.

Meg Bundy

I am so grateful for Austin.

I was worried about selling my home. I had no idea what to expect. He kept me informed throughout the process and helped me make decisions. He truly is a full service agent. I would recommend him to everyone! His expertise and knowledge are a huge asset in the buying and selling process.

Judy Barber (MS)

Only Realtor I considered to sell my home.

He was great, very informative and gave frequent update's.

Scott O'Dell

From the very beginning when we knew we were moving and needed to sell our house Austin was there for us.

He kept us updated on anything and everything we needed to know. I honestly don't know how this could have been a smoother process. This was a great experience, thank you Austin!

Daniel Kauffman (Associate Pastor)

We were definitely overwhelmed and nervous of the whole process, but Liz Stone went above and beyond for us and made us very comfortable with the entire process, the whole time: before , during, and even after the purchase.

Liz was extremely responsive and always answered any and all the questions we had. It was a very exceptional service from start to finish (and even afterwards, because I know if we needed anything Liz will be right there for us) and I feel that is rare to find. We are very glad that we chose Liz Stone to guide us through the scary but exciting process of buying our home. I highly recommend Liz Stone to anyone looking to purchase a home.

Brandy Arnold

Austin did everything that needed to be done!

Very quick and professional!

Tre Spence

Austin has been such a wonderful help with everything!

This was our first time selling our home and he had wrote down step by step for us of everything we will be going through. He helped us sell our home within two days. This process has been so easy for us and relaxing! I definitely recommend Austin Rich when it comes time for you selling or buying a home!

Cody and Brooke Hollingsworth

Liz is fabulous.

You cannot believe she is a rookie realtor. She is so full of information. She is also very energetic, works till late hours and never hesitates to show houses even in evenings. She can write up offers as late as 10 pm. Liz also has lists of contractors and companies in the areas she shows houses. On the whole, she is a one-person realtor army. With all that tiring schedule, it is incredible she still maintains her calm, composure and sweet looks even for late showings.

Giri Shreenivasan (CEO)

Austin was very professional and cares about his clients.

He was there through every process of the selling of my home . I truly would of been lost without his expertise. Home sold in one day for full asking price!!! Thanks so much Austin.

Susan McQuitty

Austin did amazing.

Will definitely use next home again.. Highly recommended!!!


Seth goes above and beyond at simplifying your home buying process, I didn’t have to handle much on my end.

The man is here to serve his clients and I cannot thank him enough for helping me in my relocation process coming from Virginia to Indiana. I was under contract within 5 days of arriving to the Muncie area and closed fast. Thanks Seth!

Aaron Steffey (Lineman )

I would highly recommend anyone looking for a home to work with Seth Stanley.

From start to finish, Seth was about finding the right home for my family, not just a house that would work. He was so patient and happy to show me countless houses to make sure we found the right one. I loved his honest opinion and calmness even in the crazy seller's market. Through the ups and downs and all of my questions, Seth was right there to make the process smooth for me. I could not imagine a better person to work with. Anyone can sell you a house; let Seth help you find your perfect home.

Lainey Marshall

Austin Rich, as well as our other point of contact from NextHome Elite, Seth Stanley, were amazing.

They were knowledgeable and professional throughout the entire process. We came to truly trust them as they treated my wife and I like family, sincerely wanting us to find the right house. Through our many showings they were open when they didn't think that a house was right for us, which was refreshing and encouraging. We have and will highly recommend them in the future.

Brant Anderson

Cortney is very thorough and very helpful when it comes to buying a house.

We greatly appreciated her help.

He is knowledgeable and experienced and possesses the connections needed to complete inspection issues, financing and closing. I highly recommend him as a trusted partner in any sale or purchase!!

Kristen Stuck (Seller)

Lindsey was, by far, the best realtor that we have ever worked with.

Her commitment and expertise exceeded expectations. She was always available to answer any questions along the way. After working with Lindsey, I wouldn't be able to trust anyone else to work with during the process of buying and selling. There is no reason to waste your time with any other realtor. I would 100% recommend Lindsey to anyone interested in buying/selling real estate. Seriously, she is the best.

Craig Knuckles

I cannot even imagine working with another realtor.

Austin gets the job done! He is so communicative about the process the whole way, he is diligent about making deadlines clear for all parties involved, and he is tenacious in delivering exactly what we asked for. After seeing his work ethic, I would recommend him a thousand times over and have zero interest in ever working with someone else.

Joseph and Adelle DeRossett

Lindsey went above and beyond in order for us to be able to purchase a dream land.

I believe Lindsey is the reason why we were able to snag our property in such a high-demand market. We reached out to another realtor who reached out after we had already seen the property with Lindsey and put an offer in. She is so timely in her responses to clients. She’s very attentive to detail and was very quick to responding and troubleshooting any problems that came up. I would definitely recommend her as a buyers agent so much that we are currently getting ready to sell our home with her!

Shelby LaFlash (Client)

Austin provided complete real estate buying service for Jeffra and me.

Austin communicated with us twice each week. He explained what to expect in the coming days and gave feedback on the actions we had taken. The purchase went according to the time schedule originally detailed. Austin did everything in his control to make the buying experience a smooth, well organized process. We highly recommend Austin Rich to anyone buying or selling their home.

Mike & Jeffra Luce (Home Seller)

Liz did an incredible job with helping us find our first home.

She was prompt and always ready to show houses, provided thoughtful suggestions, and when we got to closing on our home, she provided great advice and was strategic with her negotiation to help us get the home at the right price.

Emma Crumley

Kathy Smith is a wonderful realtor with whom to work!

She was on top of all documents that needed to be completed, all communication that was needed, and all issues that arose. Kathy was always available when I had questions and got back to me immediately; nights and weekends included! I asked many times for suggestions and I feel like she gave great advice at all facets of the process. It is without any hesitation that I would recommend Kathy Smith to friends, family and anyone who is in need of a realtor.

Jeff Blackman

Cortney was a great help in us purchasing our new home.

She was always available to answer questions, visit houses, and give us advice. We would be happy to use her again as our buying or selling agent.

Chip Meyer

It was so nice to be able to work with someone that went above and beyond to help us find a house for our family.

Austin was so personable and knowledgeable and very accommodating. He took time out while he was on vacation because it so happened that we found the house we wanted while he was away. He was able to work with us with the things we needed and also had his associate Cortney Felton help us as well. We didn't need to worry about a thing. I would highly recommend him for your buying/selling needs. Thanks Austin!

Dawn Meyer

I was very pleased with Seth.

My rental is a lower priced property with a smaller commission and through a couple struggles he stuck with it and stayed in communication with me. Made a point to ask if I needed anything and made good suggestions that in the end helped me sell my property! Thank you Next Home and Seth for getting to the finish line!!

Keith Lambert

She was on top of everything.

No complaints at all.

Cortney is an absolutely amazing realtor!

She’s literally everything a good realtor should be, she went above and beyond, answering all our questions, taking us to show our (now) new home at a last minutes notice, I just can’t say enough good things about her! She was an absolute breath of fresh air, always so sweet, professional and accommodating. I would most definitely recommend her to friends and family and if we ever find ourselves needing a realtor again, she will be our go to, hands down!

Anna Rubeck

We loved working with Michelle!

She was professional, personable, honest and trustworthy! She helped us sell our first home and we couldn’t have done that without her help. She didn’t just list our home - she really went out of her way to make sure it sold! Anyone would be lucky to have Michelle as their realtor!

She also had a lot of information availbe to help us set up our utilities and repairs for the property.

Melinda Shalley

Austin guided us every step of the way through the transaction.

He made the entire experience smooth and hassle free!

Cameron Sarah

Cortney was recommended to us through a cousin’s friend as a solid, energetic realtor.

We purchased a house in Indiana while living in CA. She managed every step for us; was always available to answer questions, provided regular updates, coordinated inspections and follow up work with contractors. She even helped us find specific contractors for work we wanted to accomplish after closing. We highly recommend her for anyone looking for top notch realtor assistance. She is truly a gem!

Ray and Laura Wolfe (Dr. And Mrs.)

Kathy was amazing, start to finish.

She made me feel comfortable as a first time seller. The process was easy, and I felt like I didn't have to lift a finger, Kathy had it all under control. I cannot recommend her enough and it was truly a great experience working with her.

Randi Comstock

By accident I was redirected to Kathy Smith when my husband and I were looking for a home.

What a blessing that was. Kathy was great to work with. She is responsive, professional and very detailed. She was available when we needed to see the home more than once. I would highly recommend Kathy to anyone. She definitely works for her client.

Jo Ann

Austin is the best of the best!

He works so hard for his clients and treated us just like family. He made the selling of our property go so smoothly! I would recommend Austin to absolutely anyone! I can’t thank him enough for everything he’s done for us!

Jessica Lacey

As first time home buyers, my wife and I did not know where to start in our house hunting journey.

By some stroke of good luck, we heard about NextHome and Seth specifically, and we reached out immediately. Seth made the home buying process incredibly easy and even enjoyable. He seemed to know our taste after just a few house visits and we barely had to do any work. He was very accommodating and helpful. He did all the hard work and we reaped the benefits. That being said, what puts Seth above many other realtors is that he truly puts your interests first. We visited many homes where he told us the negatives, whether it would be too much work, if it was not the right fit, and even details of a deal that we should avoid. If you are looking to buy any home, consider having Seth be your realtor.

Jacob Buening

Very professional

David Spears

Cortney did a very good job for us very professional no hassles.
